Next Xbox One Backwards-Compatible Games Revealed

Halo Wars, SoulCalibur II, and The King of Fighters '98 have arrived.


The Xbox One backwards compatibility program continues to grow today, as Microsoft has released three new Xbox 360 games into the lineup. As announced by Microsoft's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb, the newly added games are Halo Wars (confirmed for backwards compatibility earlier), SoulCalibur II, and The King of Fighters '98.

Now that the Xbox One has a dedicated Xbox 360 backwards compatibility store, you should be able to easily search for, find, and download these games if you're interested.

This is the third time in two weeks that Microsoft has added new titles to the program. In two separate releases last week, Microsoft launched Assassin's Creed and Dark Void and Dark Souls and Tekken Tag Tournament 2. There is no set schedule for when new games will be added. As Microsoft said previously, titles are added as soon as they are ready, not on any kind of schedule.

If your favorite game hasn't made it into the program yet (looking at you, Red Dead Redemption), there is still hope. Microsoft has said it is holding discussions with all major publishers and developers to possibly bring their games to the program. Ultimately, the decision about whether or not a game is added to the lineup comes down to individual publishers.
